Everyone is Talking About ChatGPT…What Does it Mean?

January 20, 2023 • Tech Tips

If you haven’t heard about the new AI sensation, ChatGPT, have no fear! We are here to tell you all about it, and what it means for you (and your business).

What is ChatGPT?

The artificial intelligence chatbot, ChatGPT, is the latest technology that has the internet buzzing. ChatGPT is answering questions and taking instructions from users in a conversational, human-like way. According to OpenAI’s website, it was trained with “reinforcement learning from human feedback.”

The website also states:

“We trained an initial model using supervised fine-tuning: human AI trainers provided conversations in which they played both sides—the user and an AI assistant.”

How does it work?

So, how does this intelligent chatbot work? GPT is powered by large amounts of data and computing techniques. GPT gives the user the ability to apply a variety of worded prompts; from simple questions to requests about a specific topic. Whether it be writing a short poem, or a screen play, ChatGPT has a plethora of knowledge.

Trained using text databases from all over the internet, ChatGPT was given 300 billion words to give it an excellent understanding of language. This means that it only produces text and not videos, sounds, or images. While it is extremely intelligent, ChatGPT does have its limitations. It can give incorrect information, and if a prompt contains too much content, the system can confuse or mix up certain details.

What’s off limits? ChatGPT will not compute anything deemed as inappropriate, hateful, or discriminatory in nature.

Amazingly, it is always learning. As it continues to learn, it is always improving its understanding of prompts and questions. Needless to say, it would be a teacher’s pet if it were an actual human being sitting in a classroom.

What does it mean for business?

While it would seem to be a no brainer to plug in a topic for a blog, or prompts for web copy, we would suggest you consider avoiding using this type of technology when it comes to that side of your business.

Content written by AI is considered automatically generated. So, in terms of Google’s position and SEO, Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller stated the following: 

“My suspicion is maybe the quality of content is a little bit better than the really old school tools, but for us it’s still automatically generated content, and that means for us it’s still against the Webmaster Guidelines. So, we would consider that to be spam.”

ChatGPT is certainly making waves throughout the internet, and we have had some fun with it, plugging in our own prompts to see what it will come up with. You can also enjoy Ryan Reynolds taking a stab at it too.

At the time of publication, ChatGPT has been inundated with requests and the system is currently working on keeping up with the demand.

So, in the meantime, enjoy this little rap song it wrote…
